A few weeks ago, WhatsApp's Call feature made a small appearance for a few users, but at the time almost no one was able to trigger it reliably and keep it activated.

CyanogenMod 12 Nightlies Now Available For The Moto Maxx, DROID Turbo Users Green With Envy

Before we continue, let's get a couple of things straight: this is the DROID Turbo (model number XT1250), a souped-up version of the Moto X 2014 that's exclusive to Verizon in the United States. It's ostensibly a sequel to the DROID Maxx from 2013, and like almost all Verizon-branded devices, it has a locked bootloader. No custom ROMs for the poor DROID Turbo. And this is the Moto Maxx (model number XT1225), the exact same phone released without the Verizon branding or a locked bootloader, and currently sold only in Latin America.

Can A Smartwatch Make Your Car Smarter? A Week With Hyundai's BlueLink For Android Wear

If you own a reasonably modern car (say, within two or three years old), there's a significant chance that car has some kind of cellular connectivity embedded in it, and this allows the car to do stuff remotely. Like, start. Or unlock the doors. Or lock them. Or honk the horn. These things have names... like mbrace (Mercedes), AcuraLink, Enform (Lexus), OnStar (GM), MyLincoln, and so on.

Hyundai's version, BlueLink, isn't the most fully-featured of the bunch, to be honest. But, as one of the first and arguably most enthusiastic Android Auto partners, Hyundai's shown an interest in Android that few automakers have, as evidenced by the fact that BlueLink now has an app for Android Wear.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Is Also Getting Its Lollipop Update Today

What's this? A current-generation AT&T phone and its year-old sibling getting updated on the same day? We have an embarrassment of riches, folks. Just a few hours after the Lollipop over-the-air update for the Galaxy Note 4 started on Ma Bell, the Galaxy Note 3 (from 2013) is getting the same treatment. AT&T's support page says that this is Android 5.0, build number N900AUCUEOC1.

As AT&T does with all their updates, the OTA will only start on Wi-Fi (and not that mobile connection that you're paying them to provide). The OTA file is a massive 1.2 gigabytes, and whatever server AT&T uses for these things probably has some tiny Flintstones dinosaur manually pushing data packets down a CAT-5 cable.

Microsoft Rolls Out The Azure App Service, A Cloud-Based Platform For Mobile App Development

Azure is Microsoft's answer to cloud computing, a back-end platform that powers services with general computer users knowing nothing of its role (or existence). Now the company is taking its offering mobile by announcing the Azure App Service.

This mobile-geared expansion of Microsoft's cloud platform lets developers create web apps using a framework of their choice, including .NET, Java, PHP, and Python. It supports the creation of native apps on mobile platforms, including Android. And it can produce what Microsoft's calling Logic and API apps.

Action Launcher 3.3 Adds Quicktheme Integration With Live Wallpapers, Fully Customizable System For Shortcuts And Gestures, And More

Developer Chris Lacy has pushed out another update to Action Launcher, bumping the software up to version 3.3. Just over a month has passed since the last major release, and plenty of new features have crept in during that time.

One of the most visual changes is the ability for Quicktheme — which lets Action Launcher match your wallpaper like a chameleon — to integrate with live wallpapers. This is done through an open source API that requires changes on the live wallpaper side of the equation in order to work.
